Fair E-tales

Having taken on the Waukesha County Fair, intrepid Lake Country Publications/NOW reporter Megan Sukovich now takes us on the tilt-a-whirlwind adventure that is the 2014 Wisconsin State Fair.

Governor's Blue Ribbon Livestock Auction

The Governor's Blue Ribbon Livestock Auction drew in a crowd double the size of Tuesday's Meat Products Auction. The auction raised an earth shattering total of $313,350, beating the previous record of $255,400 set in 2005. 

Bidding began with the Grand Champion Steer exhibited by Lauren May of Mineral Point, Wis. in Iowa County. The 1,290 pound steer sold for $45,000 with the winning bid from Potawatomi Hotel & Casino.

Also breaking a new record, the Grand Champion Barrow exhibited by Myles Leahy of Lafayette County received a winning bid of $23,500 by Beer Capitol Distributing.

Combined with the Meat Products Auction’s total, this year’s Governor’s Blue Ribbon Auctions raised a grand total of $463,350 for the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation.
